Memories in Hairbands

Welcome back to the blog! This week’s poem is about how I horde memories with the stuff I manage to gather through my life. A friend once gave me a hairband at work and it was a big deal to me because that friend meant a great deal to me, even though it wasn’t nearly as big of a deal to her cause she had 40 million of the damn things. I appreciate small gestures as much as possible, sometimes it probably comes off like I’m gonzo. I couldn’t tell you. Nobody has reacted poorly though, so I’d say I’m doing well for myself.

So! The big news: If you haven’t seen it already, I have officially started my YouTube channel. All of the pieces fell into place. (Which actually means I just said “to hell with it” and decided to start the project up.)

See the first here.


“Mean Shadows” is my latest book and it is available still! It is 26 short stories that touch on a medley of topics, as well as set up characters you will be reading from me for the next few years. Each story putting in place the blocks I need to build something much bigger, and hopefully, much more spectacular than it is inside my head. If you’d like to order the book and start this journey with me, you can find it on my website here, for a signed copy. If signatures aren’t your thing, you can also pick up a fresh copy off of Amazon.

For any more poetry related needs, you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter to see updates as they come out as well as receive new info on my other projects. (My poem a day challenge, my YouTube channel etc.) I’d love to have you!

Don’t forget to come back next week for the upcoming poem “Wanted: Information”
